Wunder der Schöpfung by Hanns Walter Kornblum( Visual )
1 edition published in 2009 in German and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Wunder der Schopfung, also known as Our heavenly bodies, is an extraordinary, fascinating "Kulturfilm" about the world and the universe as known during the 1920s. 15 special effects experts and nine cameramen were involved in the production of this film which combines documentary scenes, historical documents, fiction elements, animation scenes and educational impact.

Some visual ideas in the sequences with a space shuttle visiting different planets in the universe seem to have been the inspiration for Stanley Kubrick's 2001: a space odyssey
